With nearly 30 years of experience in chemical engineering, Dr. Bridgette Gomillion-Williams has earned a strong reputation in the scientific world. Years of hard work have led her to be an expert in polymer material science and engineering with specialized experience in reactive extrusion and foaming. Her ability to see the “not-so-obvious” solutions to problems and implement them has served her well in the field; she has a proven track record of innovating breakthrough product and process technology. Ms. Gomillion-Williams considers her greatest achievement thus far to be inventing and patenting the Continuous Flow Chaotic Maker. In the future, she intends to use the opportunities that are available to her in research and development to broaden her knowledge in material science.
Dr. Gomillion-Williams initially began her career at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in polymer chemistry in 1990. Shortly after that, she began working for the Dow Chemical Company, and in 2000, she furthered her education by earning a PhD in polymer science from the School of Material Science and Engineering at Clemson University. Since then, Dr. Gomillion-Williams has enjoyed a variety of research roles, including one as the technical research specialist at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics Corporation. Although she is no longer with the material science and engineering company, she garnered invaluable experience working with soft polymer foams, manufacturing parts for medical devices, conducting on-site research into production problems, supporting research and development teams, supporting manufacturing functions, and writing and executing protocols.
